Sports – and why DISH Network refuses to carry NFL Sunday Ticket DISH Network has a huge selection of sports: from the local teams you love to national football, baseball, hockey and basketball, as well as International soccer and cricket. What they don’t carry is NFL Sunday Ticket with out-of-market football games. They don’t and they won’t for one big reason. NFL Sunday Ticket costs DIRECTV $700 million a year. Maybe that’s why the average DIRECTV package costs 13% more than the average DISH Network package. NFL Sunday Ticket is great for those people who are willing to pay up to $300 extra to see every out-of-market game every week of the season. For everyone else, there’s DISH Network. Fortunately DISH football fans can still watch every electrifying NFL touchdown from inside the red zone – on the new RedZone from the NFL Network. NFL RedZone, produced by NFL Network, whips around every NFL game on Sunday afternoons delivering touchdowns and the most exciting moments live and in high definition. When a team goes inside the 20-yard line, known as the “red zone,” fans see the crucial plays as they happen. The channel keeps fans up-to-date in real time, switching from game to game with live look-ins, highlights and a chance to see every important play. DISH Network is, and always has been, based on two core principles – customer value and engineering ingenuity. DISH Network executives fight legendary battles with programmers in an effort to secure the lowest possible ‘carriage fees,’ the fees DISH Network has to pay for the channels it offers. This way, DISH pays less and you pay less, while still getting the highest quality entertainment and technology. Save yourself hundreds of dollars this and watch your favorite sports through DISH Network.
